Another key feature of the Weimar constitution was that the president of the
His main focus should be appealing to the middle-class Americans since they take up a majority of the population and seem to have the most struggles out of all the classes. Obama has appealed to the lower class a great deal and has probably locked in most of their votes which is why it is so necessary to focus on the classes that he knows he can win.

Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, tension arose between the two different types of governments, the democracy and absolute monarchs. During the Age of Absolutism there were many different views on how to run a monarchy.
